They hardly ever do come from another Reason song. They're usually some instrumental stems or vocal tracks that either come with a text file having some basic info about them such as tempo and key, or sometimes the tempo is just mentioned in their filename. If not, I count the tempo myself in Audition 1.5 which I use as my audio editor.

Currently you have to:
type in the new tempo first,
import the file, and
type in the old tempo

Both take three steps to accomplish, so there's probably not going to be a huge rush by the programmers to change the order of these steps. While your solution is a bit more elegant, there would be no real time-saving advantage of changing the current workflow IMO!
There's no need to really _change_ anything, or did I misunderstand? I'm asking a simple addition to the context menu that would let me define the clip's original tempo. It could still be done the other way - changing tempos and importing in between. It wouldn't hurt the current workflow but instead give a quicker control to those of us who want to have it. It wouldn't ask the user for a tempo when importing a file that didn't have tempo data. Nothing would change in that aspect.

Also, as I said earlier, if I want to reset a clip's original tempo to a different one, I have to re-import it with a new tempo. Suppose I have 10 audio files that are spread into different folders, some being vocal tracks in a song project folder, some being loops in my sample folder and some audio files from, say, a ReFill. Instead of hunting down each one of them again, I could just pop up a menu.

The timestretch is fantastic and such a solid part of the sequencer, that I think leaving out a simple and quick possibility to control what the song tempo is being compared to when calculating the amount of timestretch is just absent-minded.

Totally agree. As an Ableton convert I cant believe this sort of thing isn't a part of Reason 6.
